South Korean Tech Giant Samsung is probably coming up with a tile-like smart tag tracker to help you find your lost daily items like Keys, Phone, etc.

This information was disclosed on Twitter when Indian tipster Mukul Sharma who goes by the name @stufflistings on Twitter spilled the beans by tweeting about Samsung Galaxy smart tag getting the Indonesian Telecom Certification. Along with this, he also added a screenshot of the Indonesian Telecom Certification website showing the listing of the rumored device. The date of unveiling was given as the 23rd of November, 2023. The potential name of the device was also mentioned – Galaxy Smart Tag. Apart from the device model number EI-T5300 and a potential name, no other details were given on the Indonesian website about the device.

It is being said that even US tech giant Apple is also working day and night in developing a similar product called AirTag with plans to rival Samsungs’ speculated Smart Tag. Nothing much can be speculated out of this as Apple is yet to announce it officially.

Way back in October 2018, during the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Series, Samsung had also introduced its SmartThings Find feature which could easily locate your Galaxy devices with ease. Using Ultra Wide Band Technologies (UWB) and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), it could find your selected Galaxy electronics like tablets, smartwatches, mobiles, and earbuds provided they are compatible. It becomes easy to keep track of your things like keys or wallets which makes it easy to find them around your house. The device makes a beep like sound when the software detects the proximity of the lost thing. The SmartThings Find feature works on Android 8 and above versions and even works offline. The mobile application was made available on all galaxy tablets and phones that run on Android 8 or later versions and SmartWatches that run on Tizen 5.5. Although it is not supported by original Galaxy BudsIts it supports galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy Buds Plus. UWB-assisted tracking has only been made available to Z Fold 2 devices and Galaxy Note 20 as this technology is not supported by other devices presently.

The way these applications work is rather interesting. If a particular device is reported as lost on the SmartThings Find the app, a Galaxy smartphone or tablet in proximity that has been opted into helping will alert the Samsung Server about its location and a notification will be received by the sender.

As smart object trackers generally come with Bluetooth connectivity, Samsung is surely going one step ahead by adding more connectivity features like UWB, LTE, and GPS to have an edge over its competitors in the market. The company had already launched one back in 2018 with built-in LTE and GPS features.

According to many speculations, the tile tracker can be the sole successor of the GPS tracker. As of now, Samsung has decided to stay mum on this subject.
